What is PARACUP?PARACUP is a charity running event hosted by the non-profit organization PARACUP (General Incorporated Association). The entire proceeds from the event except the necessary expenditure will be used to help children around the world to promote education and well-being. The event started with 400 runners at Enoshima, Kanagawa Prefecture in May 2005, and we have had more than 40,000 runners help our cause. We are truly grateful for all the support received from runners, volunteers, corporate sponsors as well as associated organizations. Without their support, we would have not been able to continue this event to this day.
“Your joy of running will pave the way for the future of children around the world.”
That was the key message we have been sending out throughout these years.
Extending help to others is in no ways difficult or challenging but rather you can enjoy the experience and It can be done by everyone.
In this tournament that we will celebrate for the 14th time, we will deliver a 5km RUN and a 10km RUN in addition to the relay marathon newly established last year, and the yearly loved event Family Pair RUN and Kids RUN. “Friends”, “Family”, “Individuals”; We’ve chosen these races so everyone can enjoy participating in PARACUP.
Even after the race is over, we are preparing to have a day of PARACUP such as charity booths, fun activity booths, food and drink booths that you can enjoy like in “MATSURI(festive atmosphere in Japanese) “.
The activity theme of PARACUP this year is “Connecting and Connected Smiles”. We on behalf of all the staff members, will do our best so that we can make such a heartfelt and joyous day with you. PARACUP 2018, Please expect to have fun!
